A few months back I was able to take a tour at a FW and SW fish distributor's local facility. They had a skimmer about that size running on their FRESHWATER systems. I was very surprised to see the foam that it was producing. The owner said he had been using them on his personal ponds at home for a long time and finally decided to make the step over to the freshwater systems at work.

He said the key was maintaining the prefect amount of salt, which he kept at levels of "one tablespoon per gallon". He also said that he was unable to get this type of performance with any of the smaller models, but was successful with his large down draft skimmer.

It was interesting to see a skimmer that large in person.

The team for Finding Nemo became scuba certified and then they were all forced to go diving and learn about the ocean and get a better feel for what they were making... Poor crew being forced to dive...
